the importance for the republican party, i mean, they have done miserably with latino voters. so they clearly have to be on board for this to work. i want to play something that the president said during the campaign about the republicans and immigration. let's take a listen. >> if they have seen that people who care about this issue have turned out in strong numbers, that they will rethink it if not because it's the right thing to do, at least because it's in their political interest to do so. >> people turned nout strong numbers. there is a political interest when you talk about taxes. is that going to mean the republicans are going to do the right thing or are going to do what's in their best political interest to do? >> i think in this case it's both. i think it's the right thing to do for americans, but it's also the right thing for the republicans in their political interest if they actually want anything outside of control of just the house. they actually need the latino vote for senatorial seats and they need it also for the white house. in order for them to do so, they're going to ha
in 2004, squandered it with a miserable debate performance to win by a bigger margin than most expected. sort of like barack obama this year. it works on mysterious issues, too. amazing when you think about it. in 2004, it treated like a fringe concept. a massachusetts state supreme court ruling, there wasn't much of a debate. nbc news/wall street journal polling 63 tkt to 3%. bush played up the devotion to traditional marriage. democrats mostly just tried to ignore the whole thing hoping it would go away. you probably remember what it was like when bush won. value voters were the majority. america was a fundamentally conservative country. anyone who didn't support this would have to deal with it. all of this happened just eight years ago. feels more distant after what played out this year in 2012. the incumbent president endorsed marriage equality. gay marriage started winning at the ballot box. 4 for 4 last month. polls show plurality and outright majority for gay marriage. it's not slowing the transformation of gay marriage. it's been rapid and profound. it's hard to think of a singl
